Authors,

Since Flash is very powerful do you think Ajax will pose any Competition to Ajax? How capabilities does ajax have compared to flash?

There are libraries that combine the two now: http://www.aflax.org/

Here are some articles that are getting a little dated:

Flash is way toooooo big for that to happen, plus with integration of Ajax with flash, a lot of cool stuff with graphics can be done that you have a hard time doing with JavaScript. You got SVG but it is not the greatest.

One day I will learn actionscript.
